1.A client who is suspected of having tetanus asks a nurse about immunizations against tetanus. Before responding, what should the nurse consider about the benefits of tetanus antitoxin? It stimulates plasma cells directly. A high titer of antibodies is generated. It provides immediate active immunity. A long-lasting passive immunity is produced. Tetanus antitoxin provides antibodies, which confer immediate passive immunity. Antitoxin does not stimulate production of antibodies. It provides passive, not active, immunity. Passive immunity, by definition, is not long-lasting. 2.A nurse is determining whether a 5-year-old child is displaying appropriate behaviors for this age. What developmental findings does the nurse expect? Select all that apply. Enjoys imitative play Engages in ritualistic games Makes up rules for a new game Asks for a pacifier when uncomfortable Plays near others quietly but not with them Imitating adults by playing adult roles in society is at its peak in children 5 years of age; activities are strongly identified with same-sex parent. A 5-year-old is able to negotiate and use make-believe to play. These children are able to follow some rules but may cheat to win. Older children in the middle childhood years need conformity and rituals, whether they play games or amass collections. Rules to games are fixed, unvarying, and rigid. Knowing the rules means belonging. The use of a pacifier for oral satisfaction is typical of infants. Parallel play occurs in children ages 2 to 3 years.
